Hi Guys,

I was just wondering if I could create a program that doesn't appear in the taskbar. Basically a program running in the background.

Many Thanks,

Googie.

Any LiveCode standalone can be run facelessly from the command line with the -ui flag, e.g.:

MyProgramName -ui

You'll want to handle the startup message in the stack script as your entry point for execution.

I love using LC in Terminal. Do you mind if I ask what you're working on?

If I remember right, setting the stack mode to "modeless" prevents it from showing in the task bar.
